Shabby Chic Shoppers

This was one of those cards that didn't end up the way I intended it to start. I still like it though!!

This week Jen has a great Sketch for you to try. I stamped this image and a bunch more at her house the other day, and I'm having a blast coloring them! My color combo came from this paper from My Minds Eye, which I stocked up on since it's discontinued. It's probably one of my very very favorites ever!!

So I'm going to be short & sweet tonight...I'm tired and ready for bed! Tomorrow holds a fun (yeah right) day looking at cars. Probably my least favorite thing to do, especially with 2 boys in tow. UGH.

Hope yall have a great weekend, and don't forget to check out Carole & Susan's take on this sketch!

Ummmm, can you say FABULOUS? :) That's some of my favorite paper, and my fave embossing folder, plus I love the sponging, the brads, everything. Gorgeous!

Love this, Shannan! Great color combo -- very elegant. Aren't MFTs fun to color?! Love 'em! Good luck w/ the car search (yuck! I agree).

This is great!!!!! Man, I don't know what I'm more jealous of, your incredible stamping talents or the fact that you get to go to Jen's and borrow her images and rub shoulders with her. I'm jealous :-)

Happy car hunting and hopefully all goes well. DD was with me when I got my new car and was actually really great--other than deciding we were getting a small car with no room for both brothers in the back seat.
